Pole[edit]

Hi!

Why You changed interwiki in Pole and other articles? It was directed to same meaning in other languagues. --Postrach (talk) 04:28, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

There is no "same meaning" for a disambiguation page. I linked to the same word in other languages. Marc Mongenet (talk) 22:52, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Unexplained removal of non-English wiki links[edit]

What are you doing? You removed id:C from C (disambiguation) with the edit summary -id:B. --Doug.(talk contribs) 03:36, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, a copy/paste error; I did many modifications per minute on a dozen of wikis. Marc Mongenet (talk) 03:38, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
The correct interwiki is between id:C and C. Marc Mongenet (talk) 03:40, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Removing interwiki links[edit]

Information.svg Please stop removing interwiki links from articles without an edit summary, as you did on Star (disambiguation). These links are there for a reason, and removal of them without a valid edit summary will be considered vandalism, which can result in you being blocked from editing. If this is part of an ongoing project, you may want to link your summaries to a user subpage which explains your actions. — Swpbτ c 14:53, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for my poor edit summary. I thought it was obvious that I was linking to disambiguation pages for the same word in other languages. Marc Mongenet (talk) 22:50, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Your edit removed many valid links to pages in other languages. I'm not sure, but perhaps there is some misunderstanding of the purpose of interwiki links? Links to pages that correspond to a translation of the English title are appropriate. Sometimes there is a term in another language that is spelled the same as the English page title, but which does not actually correspond to the English term. In such cases, I think the interwiki link should point to the term in the language that does correspond in meaning to the English term, rather than to a term that only incidentally happens to share the same spelling as the English term. olderwiser 12:10, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg I have reverted your changes again, because again you have removed dozens of interwiki links from the article, without any explanation of why they were removed! Your reasoning is not obvious, your edits are clearly removing helpful content. Unless you speak 24 languages, I'm not sure how you could know that every single one of the links you removed was mis-directed, and at that, you didn't re-target them, you just deleted them! I'm not sure what policy you think you're following, but please stop removing interwiki links from any more articles without a thorough explanation for each one. Consider this a second vandalism warning.Swpbτ c 16:09, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

You've pointed to one interwiki link where the target didn't make sense. That doesn't justify removing twenty four without explanation. If you're going to add links or replace bad ones with good ones, those are minor edits, but as soon as you start cutting out links and leaving nothing in their place, you need to carefully justify those edits. I'm sorry, but explaining your edits is how things work around here, and you'd better get used to it. — Swpbτ c 16:17, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
cutting out links and leaving nothing in their place --> Learn to read diffs first. Marc Mongenet (talk) 17:05, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
That diff that shows all the links you just plain removed? Pretty sure I'm reading that exactly right. — Swpbτ c 04:45, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

See, eventually JAnDbot fixed all wrong interwikis... Marc Mongenet (talk) 22:29, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Swiss flag[edit]

Hi. There are currently two different versions of the Swiss flag used across the English wikipedia, so I started a discussion at WT:CH#Swiss red to see if there is one better version that we could use consistently. In case you have any comment or suggestion (as a contributor to File:Flag of Switzerland.svg), you are welcome to join the discussion. mgeo talk 22:10, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
